Receiving Social Security for a seizure disorder involving petit mal seizures or non-convulsive epilepsy

If you suffer from petit mal seizures or non-convulsive epilepsy, you may be eligible for disability benefits from the Social Security Administration. Social Security assesses non-convulsive epilepsy claims according to the frequency of documented seizures.  To qualify for disability benefits based on non-convulsive epilepsy or petit mal seizures, your seizures must occur more than once per week.  Your seizures must result in an alteration of awareness, loss of consciousness, unconventional behavior or significant interference with your activity.  In addition, your non-convulsive or petit mal seizures must occur more than once per week despite at least three months of anti-epileptic medication.  Even if you have non-convulsive or petit mal seizures more often than once per week, your claim may be denied if the Social Security Administration determines that your level of anti-epileptic medication is “sub therapeutic.” If you have already applied or you are thinking of applying for Social Security disability benefits due to non-convulsive epilepsy or petit mal seizures, one of our experienced disability attorneys can help you with a free consultation.  Simply call Hoglund Law  today or click on the link to the right for your free disability evaluation.
